The large, flat blooms are a pure, radiant white, often with a subtle yellow or pink center, creating a stunning and sophisticated appearance.

    Care Instructions:

    Light:

    • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate leaves and flowers.

    Water:

    • Water thoroughly when the potting mix is almost dry. The White Phalaenopsis prefers consistently moist conditions but not waterlogged. Water about once a week and reduce watering in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.

    Humidity:

    • Thrives in moderate to high humidity environments. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain the necessary moisture levels, especially in dry indoor conditions.

    Temperature:

    • Prefers temperatures between 65°F and 80°F (18°C - 27°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 55°F (13°C).

    Soil:

    • Use a well-draining, orchid-specific potting mix. A mix containing bark, perlite, and sphagnum moss works well to support healthy growth.

    Fertilizer:

    • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble orchid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter.

    Pruning:

    • Remove spent flowers and dead flower spikes to encourage new blooms and maintain appearance. Trim back any dead or damaged leaves to promote new growth.
